Topic:

The Denial and Its Cost


- Reflections on Nanking Massacre 70 years ago and beyond


2007 marks the 70 th anniversary of the Rape of Nanking. The Nanking Massacre was but one of the massive atrocious genocide the Imperial Japan committed during their aggression to China in WWII. From 1931 to 1945, Imperial Japanese military committed innumerable atrocities throughout Asia . But, up to this date , Japan continues to evade the responsibility of its heinous war crimes. The tension and animosity between Asian countries and Japan stem from this unresolved past; and that undermines the stability and peace in the Asian region, and beyond.

70 years have elapsed, one wonders how Japan has been able to escape the responsibility for its horrific war crimes committed against its Asian neighbors for so long . How can Japan regain the trust and respect of its brutally victimized neighbors during World War II? What can you do to bring forth the awareness of the Japanese atrocities committed in Asia during the Pacific Wa r ? How has the world learned from man's inhumanity against man and how has it been affected by the aggressor's post-war denial? And what can you do to help bring this tragic chapter of history to a proper closure?


" Japan must apologize for its aggression and offer compensation. This is

the basic condition, and most Japanese with a good conscience have been for

it. But a coalition of conservative parties, bureaucrats and business leaders

opposes."

- Kenzaburo Oe

Japanese novelist,

Nobel Prize Laureate for Literature, 1994
